DESCRIPTION The Bhut Jolokia pepper, with its 1,000,000 SHU, is considered one of the hottest varieties in the world. It belongs to the species Capsicum chinense.
Native to northeast India and neighboring Bangladesh, the fresh fruit has a rounded conical shape at the end about 4 cm long by 2 cm wide. The young fruit is green and as it ripens takes on an intense orange to dark red color due to its high carotenoid content.
In the Assamese language, "bhut" means "ghost", hence Ghost Chili in English. It is also known by other names such as Bih Jolokia (poisonous pepper) or Naga Jolokia, where naga in Sanskrit means cobra snake, probably because the heat it develops in the mouth strikes like a snake.
Chilli powder obtained exclusively from the Bhut Jolokia variety of the Capsicum chinense species grown in an organic/biodynamic system and freeze-dried.
